Subject: undergraduate research
I have an undergraduate student who collected her own data and wrote a
good analysis of the role the Vagina Monologues is playing in reviving
campus feminism. She is interested in graduate school and I would like
to help her find a way to publish this work. Does anyone know of
undergraduate or feminist journals open to this kind of work (at an
advanced undergraduate level)? Reply to list if others are interested.
Thank you - Jo Reger Oakland University

It sounds like something that BITCH:Feminist Response to Pop Culture
might consider.  You can (or your student can) reach their editor, Lisa
Jervis, at lisa  AT  bitchmagazine.com.  Naturally, the writing style would
have to be more massmarket than academic for something like this, but I
should think that wouldn't be too difficult to do.

I"m also interested in this question. A graduate student in our
program from China has written a very good analysis of the changing
position of women in the transition from Maoist to post-Maoist gender
policies. It is perhaps not sufficiently developed to be submitted to
a "regular" professional journal, but would be an excellent submission
to a journal featuring the work of students.  Are there any?

The Women's Studies grad students at the University of Cincinnati have a new
journal called The Rag.  Their email address is cincinnati_rag  AT  yahoo.com
You might try that.

www.feminista.com is an on-line journal (now back on-line) which seems to
publish essays from student writers.

  Yeah, I was waiting for someone to suggest that.  And while I can't speak
for the Journal (see http://nwsaj.appstate.edu/ ), they were very receptive
to and helpful with a review essay by me, and I think they are always
looking for book reviewers--a great way to cut one's teeth on scholarship, I
should think.  The review essays (min. 5 books) earn one a byline, but the
reviews cannot hurt a developng C.V.
  The Journal is currently in transition over the summer--to a new home at
Iowa State University, in Ames, Iowa.  The new book review editor is Leslie
Bloom, blooml  AT  iastate.edu, who teaches Feminist Theory

  Any other questions about NWSA Journal, I would direct to Iowa State
Women's Studies Department directly.

Have a lovely summer, everyone!
